Black isn't often a color we associate with summer, which is why I paused over these images just a bit longer than usual.
Though an unlikely color choice for a space that's meant for cooling off, the black canopied daybed works functionally because of the shade it provides and aesthetically for the sense of drama it creates.
Outsides spaces shouldn't be an afterthought but rather another opportunity on which to put your unique style stamp. I love the versatility of this particular design: white cushions and sea inspired pillows comfortable enough for day, and black sofas and coffee table sleek enough for night.
